Bellamy Bunny Part 1

Bellamy Bunny Part 1

HEAD

Make one.  Using colour (PRINCESS BLUE GREY) yarn make a magic circle.

Helpful hint: we are working in rounds.

Round 1 – nose

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc 6 into mc, place stitch marker in 6th sc and continue to work in the round (6 sc).

Helpful hint: move the stitch marker (or use a running marker) and place in the last stitch of each round; this will help keep your stitch count correct and help with round counting.  Because we are working quite tightly in the round, I weave my beginning tail in whilst working round 2.

Round 2

*Sc 2 into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Helpful hint: with my patterns, I usually always start with an increase in the 1st stitch, so if your increase stitch falls in the first stitch of the increase stitch from the last row, your stitch should be correct.

Round 3

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 4

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more  times (24 sc).

Round 5

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 6

Sc into next 30 sts (30 sc).

Round 7

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 4 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Rounds 8 – 9

Sc into next 36 sts (36 sc).

Round 10

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 5 sts* rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Rounds 11 – 13

Sc into next 42 sts (42 sc).

Helpful hint: if you are using a safety nose, you can place it just above row 2 now.  If you are wanting to embroider a nose, you can do that when the head is finished and stuffed.

Round 14

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 6 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 15

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 7 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Rounds 16 – 19

Sc into next 54 sts (54 sc).

Helpful hint: insert safety eyes in between row 19 and 20, about 25 stitches apart.

Round 20

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 8 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Rounds 21 – 22

Sc into next 60 sts (60 sc).

Round 23

*Sc 2 into next st, sc into next 9 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (66 sc).

Rounds 24 – 28

Sc into next 66 sts (66 sc).

Round 29

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 9 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (60 sc).

Round 30

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 8 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (54 sc).

Round 31

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 7 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (48 sc).

Round 32

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 6 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (42 sc).

Round 33

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 5 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (36 sc).

Helpful hint: you can stuff the head now, and then just add more in before you close off after the last round, the head should be firm, but do not over stuff otherwise the stitches start to pull apart and you can see the stuffing.

Round 34

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 4 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (30 sc).

Round 35

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 3 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (24 sc).

Round 36

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next 2 sts*, rep *.* 5 more times (18 sc).

Round 37

*Inv sc2tog, sc into next st*, rep *.* 5 more times (12 sc).

Helpful hint: add more stuffing now if you think it is necessary but be careful not to overstuff.

Round 38

*Inv sc2tog*, rep *.* 5 more times (6 sc) cut yarn, use a sewing needle to sew end through FLO of each st, pull tight and weave in end.

Helpful hint: this is the back of the head.  We will attach the head to the body in Part 6.

TAIL

Make one.  Using colour (BLUE GREY) yarn, make a magic circle.

Helpful hint: the chain 1 at the beginning of each of the following rounds does NOT count as a stitch, and the chain 1 is a loose chain.

Round 1

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), dc 12 into mc, ss into 1st st (12 dc).

Round 2

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), dc 2 into same sp, *dc 2 into next st*, rep *.* 10 more times, ss into 1st st (24 dc).

Round 3

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), *dc2tog, dc into next st*, rep *.* 7 more times, ss into 1st st (16 dc).

Round 4

Ch 1 (does not count as a st), sc into same sp, sc into next 15 sts, ss into 1st st (16 sc), cut yarn leaving a 30 cm tail.

Helpful hint: we will attach the tail to the body in Part  6.

PAW PADS
